800MHz iBook G3 Is a Very Restless Sleeper!
Hello iFixit. Normally, I can figure stuff like this out, but this is just the strangest thing I've ever experienced, and I don't know how to fix it.
I have an iBook G3 (800MHz) that after replacing the upper case, won't make up its mind about sleeping. If you close the screen, it will go to sleep, but if you touch the screen or move the computer, it wakes up instantly! Then, if you open the screen to let it wake up, it falls into an endless loop of sleeping and waking, sleeping and waking.
I don't know what to do about this. . . . I've checked, double-checked, and triple-checked the sleep magnet in the trackpad case and nothing seems wrong with it. :/
The iBook used to work fine before I replaced the upper case piece to get rid of a couple cracks. Now, it just can't make up its mind about sleeping.
I guess it should be noted that it will sleep perfectly fine if you tell it to sleep. But anything relating to the sleep magnet makes it go haywire! I don't know if it's the magnet sensor in the display or if it's the new trackpad.
Anyone have any ideas? Anyone ever experienced something like this before?
Thanks for looking! I hope someone can help. . . . I'm kinda at a loss with this one for now.
Is this a good question?
